Ethan Dolan is an online celebrity, influencer and entrepreneur, born on 16 December 1999 in New Jersey, USA. He’s known for being a former Vine content creator ,and for his YouTube channel Dolan Twins, on which he posts videos with his brother.
There’s not much information about Ethan Dolan’s early life, including his educational background. He’s the son of Lisa and Sean Dolan, has an older sister named Cameron and his twin brother is named Grayson. His family is of Irish origin.
Alongside his brother, Ethan started practicing wrestling from an early age, which has helped him to maintain a good physical condition, and led him to attend important competitions.
In May 2013 Ethan and his brother Grayson started posting videos on the now defunct short-clips app Vine. Their trademark content consisted mostly of comedy, which helped them to gain more than six millions followers until the site’s partial closure in 2017.
In 2014 the twin brothers created a YouTube channel named “Dolan Twins”, on which they shared similar content to that on Vine, though the format was different. The somewhat expected success of Ethan and his brother on this web led them in 2016 to embark on the world tour “4OU”, and to win several awards, including the categories for Choice Web Star and Choice YouTuber at the Teen Choice Awards.
Ethan and his brother posted videos on YouTube consistently for four years, then took a short break from the platform in March 2018, stating they were going to re-formulate the creative ways of the channel. In May that year they ended their hiatus, announcing that they were part of the YouTube series “The Sister Squad”, alongside other famous content creators Emma Chamberlain and James Charles.
In October 2019, the brothers announced that their channel’s content would definitely change, as they felt it didn’t represent their personalities anymore, and was affecting their emotional well-being and mental health.
This sudden announcement was caused by their father’s death in early 2019, which originated several changes in the brothers’ way of seeing life, as Ethan explained in the video “It’s Time To Move On“: ‘Had we not been filming a video every week, we would have been able to spend more time with our family around the time that they needed us’.
I’m 2019 Ethan and his brother Grayson released their fragrance brand Wakeheart, which showcased two scents, achieving huge commercial success with it. In 2020, the twins released the first brand’s collection named “Enterlight”, which included three scents personally developed by the brothers.
Regarding this milestone in his career, Ethan spoke with NYLON Magazine about it: ‘Part of the reason why we chose fragrance is because of the confidence it can generate for an individual. For us, it was proof of ourselves; every time we wore certain fragrances we felt like our greatest. So to be able to share that confidence with our viewers and the people we care about and respect so much, was our main focus on creating this company.’
What happened to Ethan Dolan?
In August 2018 Ethan Dolan was in an accident on his motorbike. Although the event wasn’t serious, he spent various days of recovery in hospital and decided to stop riding his bike.
He shared his thoughts on the unfortunate incident on his Twitter account, confessing he was grateful to be alive: ‘I got into a pretty fucked motorcycle accident.. I’m completely fine. Somehow. I realize no matter your ability, anything can happen. Just in general anything could happen, enjoy everyday and just be grateful to be here.’
Currently Ethan is in good health, and is still active on his social media accounts and on YouTube.
In 2018 Ethan Dolan was romantically linked to fellow YouTuber Emma Chamberlain. However, neither of them have commented on the said rumors.
More recently, in 2020 it was rumored that Ethan was dating the Australian influencer Kristina Alice, who appeared as his romantic interest in the music video by Club Sport entitled “Hawaiian Party”, directed by him and his brother.
Although at first the relationship between the two seemed solely a fan rumor, Ethan and Kristina were spotted hanging out together on a beach, and shared Instagram Stories from the same place. Intrigued by the various coincidences, Ethan’s fans inquired about his relationship status in the video “Addressing About Us”, to which he affirmed he was in a ‘committed relationship’.
Despite not confirming the identity of his girlfriend, his fans were keen on affirming that Kristina is his current partner: ‘The girl he kissed in the music video. I think everyone knows that by now. Like read the room,’ one of his fans tweeted.
Deciding it was time to show their love to the rest of the world, Ethan started posting photos with Kristina on his social media, and she appeared in a Dolan Twins’ live video, during hich she said she would travel to the US to visit Ethan.

In October 2020 the Dolan Twins posted a VLOG on their channel, showing Kristina’s arrival in the US: ‘I’m not gonna lie, this is a surreal feeling, it’s been about four months since we’ve seen each other, and I had no clue when we were gonna be able to see each other again.’
In the video he also shared information about his plans to move to Australia, to spend more time with Kristina: ‘I applied for my residency, but my application is still being reviewed. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she was luckily able to get an exemption to travel here to visit and I don’t know how the f**k it happened, but I’m extremely blessed’.
Since then Ethan has shared various pics of himself and his girlfriend together on his social media accounts.
Ethan’s father died on 19 January 2019 at fifty years old, due to complications related to cancer.
In September 2019 Ethan and his twin Grayson bought a mansion in Hollywood for $2.5 million, leaving behind their previous home located in Encino. It has been reported that their new house is luxurious with four bedrooms, various conveniences, and a spacious yard.
Regarding his personal care, in 2020 Ethan Dolan began adopting a vegan lifestyle as he pondered his former eating habits from a moral perspective: ‘As I sat on that thought I realized doing that is simply taking away animal’s rights to live free lives.
I personally could never kill an animal so I wasn’t going to let other people do it for me and then just buy them at the store or a restaurant.’
The change was easy for him, as he revealed on an Instagram post: ‘The transition from eating whatever I wanted to being strictly vegan was actually seamless and one of the easiest things I’ve ever done. I had fun finding my new favorite meals and vegan alternatives of my old favs. It feels good knowing about everything I’m putting in my body and exactly how it’s going to make me feel. It also feels good knowing that I’m giving back to the planet that has given me so much.’
Feeling he needed to create awareness about eating habits, Ethan often shares vegan recipes on his social media accounts.
